The chapel is just outside the main building and could be missed unless you notice the signs. Again, the interior is an amazing example of the extravagance of the Baroque period of decoration.

Take a few minutes to enjoy this breath taking building. It was not included in our walking tour, but we returned to see it.

Amazing! The chapel is so over the top and unrestrained that it bypasses all questions of taste or proportion. The only parallel I can draw is the gooseflesh inducing first view of the Taj Mahal. and it is free of charge.
